Included in this bundle are:
- 9781784166366- The God Delusion: For decades, Richard Dawkins was known for his work as an evolutionary biologist, but with this impassioned 2006 rebuttal of religion, he became the leading figure of the New Atheism. Taking aim at creationism and intelligent design, Dawkins also calls out the dangers of fundamentalism—from the Crusades to 9/11—noting how religious dogma has been used to limit the rights of women, children, and homosexuals. Building a case for atheism, Dawkins argues that non-believers can live happy and moral lives, appreciating the wonders of the universe without recourse to unfounded supernatural beliefs.
- 9780552778053- The Magic of Reality: Magic takes many forms. The ancient Egyptians explained the night by suggesting that the goddess Nut swallowed the sun. The Vikings believed a rainbow was the gods' bridge to earth. These are magical, extraordinary tales. But there is another kind of magic, and it lies in the exhilaration of discovering the real answers to these questions. It is the magic of reality- science. Packed with inspiring explanations of space, time and evolution, laced with humor and clever thought experiments, The Magic of Reality explores a stunningly wide range of natural phenomena.
